Now that we know how to single crochet, chain, and slip stitch, we are going to use all of these skills to create the moss stitch cowl scarf!


This pattern can be made using any size hook and yarn. I have created mine using:

The Pattern

Make a foundation chain that measures to the appropriate length. The chain must be an uneven number. Attach the first and last chain with a slip stitch.

Pro Tips:

  • When you add stitches on top of your foundation chain it will stretch a little (or a lot) depending on the type of yarn and size of your hook. When measuring your length, stretch your chain a little.
  • Be careful not to twist the chain before joining.

Row 1: CH 2, skip one stitch, sc in the next stitch. *CH 1, skip one stitch, sc in the next stitch.* Repeat the part between the *’s until you get to your starting CH 2. CH 1 and SS into the top of the CH 2.

Row 2: CH 1, SC into the CH 2 space. *CH 1, skip one stitch, SC into the CH 1 space from the previous row.* Repeat the part between the *’s until you get to the starting SC. SS into the SC.

Row 3-End: Repeat Row 1 and Row 2 until you reach the desired width of your cowl scarf.

Yay! You did it!
